Obama & other Impressions from from the NJDC Cattle Call Today

I had a chance, at the last minute, to go to part of the National Jewish Democratic Council meeting & Democratic Presidential Candidate cattle call, in Washington, DC today.  I missed John Edwards last night.  Today Biden & Obama spoke, tomorrow H. Clinton & Richardson will address the group of a couple of hundred mostly Jewish Democratic activists, most of whom are old pro's in Dem. politics, even the young folks.

Gore/Clark/Hagel/Gingrich/Thompson - Debate?

I want to be the first to propose that Al Gore, Wes Clark, Newt Gingrich, Chuck Hagel & Fred Thompson have a Maybe Presidential Debate.  An ideal moderator would be Mario Cuomo who spent most of 1988 and 1992 deciding on a presidential candidacy which never made it off the runway of an airport tarmac in Albany.  Heck, maybe Cuomo is considering a run.  Anybody but Fox "News" or Fox's print inspiration, the Washington Times, should run the debate.

Remembering Tom Eagleton For What He Really Was

I just saw that former Missouri Senator Tom Eagleton passed away this weekend.  I grew up in St. Louis & for part of my childhood the Eagletons lived in my neighborhood.  I knew his kids a little, though not well.  Over the years I met him many times and he always took the time to listen and perhaps tell a joke or commiserate about the latest Republican outrage.  He was a nice man, really.
